This Christmas is all they've got...
I wasn't afraid to work for notorious single Dad Barclay Rothchester. His adorable girls made it an easy decision.
But the rumours are true. He's intolerable.
He’s such a strict control freak, that I find myself fired. Now I only have a few weeks with his precious girls. I'm determined to make their Christmas as amazing as possible.
Only, now I'm going, I can't help but start to understand him.
I've already taken another job in France so nothing can happen between us.
Even if I really want it to...

An adventure or a nightmare?
We inherited a pub in Ireland. Left England behind in search of a great adventure...only, it's not exactly what we expected. It's a complete wreck and the locals hate us.
We're not convinced we can actually make this work.
Not until we meet cocky and charismatic barman Clooney Breen, who promises to help us turn it around.
But can mysterious Clooney, with his obvious secrets and desire to be our saviour, really be trusted? Or are we being played by this handsome lothario who seems too good to be true?
That's all before I discover another ‘gift’ I've inherited that changes everything…

I had a one night stand. And I'm pregnant. I'm such a cliche.
But damn, that Arthur Ellison is sex on legs. The Cabinet Secretary exudes power in those tailored suits with his chiselled jaw and magnetic eyes. Who could blame me, really?
Doesn't make him any less eligible though. He's married to his country. Doesn't have any time for me or this baby.
That doesn't stop me wishing he'd grow a heart big enough for all of us.
Can I, a creative soul, and an analytical mind navigate this pregnancy together?
Time is running out and now the whole country is watching...
